Warner Bros. and DC May Have Found Hope with 2018’s Aquaman

While the Marvel universe has been putting its fair share of work for more than a decade, the DC Extended Universe never truly captivated audiences. All three films, Wonder Woman, Batman V Superman, and Suicide Squad never had a common foundation in terms of tone.

While many DC fans are very skeptical about the future of this shared universe, Warner Bros Pictures Group President gave viewers a glimmer of hope, and it’s all thanks to the director, James Wan. Wan has directed notable movies such as Saw, The Conjuring and Insidious series, and Furious 7.

“It’s not too hot or too cold — [Wan] struck a great balance between fun and jeopardy, edge and wonder, comedy, and tragedy,” Toby Emmerich told Variety.

Emmerich also gave plaudits to the fictional underwater kingdom of Atlantis, saying, “James created a totally original underwater universe. Just as Patty Jenkins did with Themyscira, James’ Atlantis is cool and compelling — unlike any world we’ve seen on film before, in a superhero movie or any other.”

Along with many readers and viewers, I was surprised with the tone of the original Aquaman trailer. You could sense a Thor-esque persona in Jason Momoa – strong, alpha male, but looking to crack some jokes along the way.

Aquaman is on set to dive into theaters on December 21st, 2018.
